‘LIVE with Kelly’ Episode Guide (Jan. 2): America Ferrera; Colleen Ballinger

On today’s all-new episode of the syndicated “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan,” actress America Ferrera visits the program to discuss the winter premiere of the hilarious comedy series “Superstore,” which airs Thursdays on NBC.

Next, Colleen Ballinger, creator of “Miranda Sings,” discusses the Netflix series “Haters Back Off.” And later, Dr. Taz Bhatia shares advice for sticking with your New Year’s resolutions.

Currently in her 16th year with the show, Kelly Ripa took the lead on “LIVE” during the search for a new co-host. Fifty-nine different men and women shared the co-host desk over a nine month period. During that time, she helped to build the show’s key demo ratings and kept the momentum going until a new host was named.

On May 1, 2017 — nearly a year after Michael Strahan departed from the series to contribute to “Good Morning America” — Kelly announced veteran broadcaster Ryan Seacrest as the co-host of the newly re-christened “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

Seacrest joins Daytime Emmy Award-winner Ripa as co-host and a fellow executive producer on daytime’s longest-running, No. 1 entertainment talk show. A staple of modern American pop culture and media, and a household name from his decades on the radio, on television and as an Emmy-winning producer, Seacrest also has been a longtime friend of “Live,” with many guest appearances and multiple co-hosting stints.

“Live with Kelly and Ryan” is distributed in national syndication by Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.
